I think it makes that both men would be heels though. Heels generally say things that a face star just won't, or is expected to say. Thus, both men can take shots with the fans excepting the more insulting of words from both parties. Eventually they would side with one, or the other. This coming down to who would come out as the better heel, and I think Punk has Rhodes in that area. Thus turning Cody face only due to default based on Punk being a better heel. Cody out wits Punk, and I think he can pull off a smooth face turn, and character change.
